Gak! Heresy!

Seriously, though, I don't see it as whining. I see it as information. Personally, I like whole shows in part because I tend to be a historical purist. (And not just when it comes to GD.) So while I might download a show with a missing encore, I like to know it's there. (Or rather, NOT there!) That's just another piece of information that helps folks figure out what they might like to check out at length. If you don't care, you don't care, and that's fine, but information isn't a bad thing ...

I entirely agree, and for the same reason. I not only want to hear the music, but also want to know the history as accurately as possible. I comb the reviews for people's memories, and always pay attention to the lineage of the recordings. But I admit it's an eccentricity.

I like to hear the whole show too. For me opening numbers set the tone for a show, and the encore draws a line under it. I'm not obsessive about it, but missing a 'Mississippi Half-step' would bother me more than a 'Promised Land'.

In a sense this is a re-run of the Road Trips debate. But just as I bought 'Europe 72' (the prototype RT), I buy these latest releases knowing that they're incomplete. Although I will admit to cut and paste tinkering to some of them if I can get a complete show in improved quality.
